Spellbinders Spring Blog Hop. My prize was a set of Spellbinders Labels and Tags dies. I was excited to receive these dies, as you can imagine. I've used several of the dies in the usual way on a number of cards since receiving them, but I wanted to find some more creative ways to use them, too. After studying them, I decided that the small oval tag looked a lot like a flower petal. It's the one with the arrow pointing to it.
I cut out several "petals" using this die, molded them a bit with an embossing tool and used a purple Promarker to add some flicks of a deeper color.
Once I had them looking a little more like actual petals, I lined up the tiny holes at the end of each tag and joined them together with a glitter brad. This was the result:
What tools do you have that you've used in unusual ways? I'd love to hear your ideas.
Thanks for visiting, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
